Being injured in an accident in Ohio due to the negligence of another can turn your world upside down. When you suffer severe injuries, you may have to take a considerable amount of time away from work, which may negatively affect your financial status. Injuries often come with costly medical bills that you may be required to pay out of pocket. These expenses should not be your responsibility if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. By working with a personal injury attorney, you can file a lawsuit against that person for compensation.  

Hiring an attorney 

With minor injuries, you may be able to settle the issues on your own with the help of your insurance company, which may act on your behalf to settle with the negligent individual’s insurance company. When your injuries are more severe, you can benefit from working with an attorney. An attorney can help you file a personal injury lawsuit to request compensation that will cover your past medical bills as well as compensate you for anticipated bills based on the extent of your injuries.  

The basis for suing another individual for personal injury is being able to show negligence. Your attorney can help you gather the evidence needed to show that the individual acted negligently. Communicate only through your attorney if the other party’s attorney or an insurance representative contacts you.
